Mörkrummet is the organisation’s own darkroom. It has been a part of the organisation ever since it began and has been an important resource for both professional photographers as well as amateurs who do not have access to their own darkroom facilities. Due to the breakthrough of digital imagining techniques the interest and need for darkrooms has waned, and many other darkrooms have been forced to close down. But we are acutely aware that interest is still out there, and that darkroom techniques will continue to be rediscovered by a new generation of photographers and artists. That is why we aspire to continue to offer the possibility of working in a darkroom in Malmö.
The darkroom is located in a basement space at Västanforsgatan 30b, with other cultural organisations, rehearsal halls, and auto mechanics as neighbours. We currently have open spots, and hope to recruit more active members in the near future.
The darkroom is completely non-profit, and all management is handled by the members. As a member you have access to the darkroom 24 hours a day, subject to availability. Booking a session is done through an online calendar. There is room for storage of chemicals, paper, and other materials needed for darkroom work. All materials are paid for by the members themselves.
The darkroom is currently set up for black and white developing and printing only, however, we do have colour equipment that can be set up if there is an interest.
